On Friday 12th January NELD held Their annual Presentation Evening, at Middleton Hall Retirement Village. The final donations were presented to the 2017 charities and their charities for 2018 were also formally introduced.
The 2017 charities Butterfly Giving and Family Help Darlington CIO were presented with their final cheques for £9,300. (Both charities were also presented with a cheque for £1,000 each at the Annual Anniversary Luncheon which represented the money raised by Barclaycard staff running the Tombola) Barclaycard, as part of their commitment to support local charities, match any funds raised by its colleagues. This means each charity has also been credited with a further £1,000 directly to their bank account to match the amount raised by the Barclaycard team.
That’s an amazing total of £11,300 each for Butterfly Giving and Family Help Darlington CIO.
Each of the three 2018 charities gave an introductory overview of their charity to the gathering and talked about how they are hoping to spend the funds which they may receive from NELD this year. The evening was full of fantastic anecdotes, inspiring memories and ambitious goals. Guests from the event quickly shared how enjoyable they found it.
